OK, this one is for the power users that want to have the best of both worlds, meaning the fresh MetroUI on their Google Android-powered tablets. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Asus Transformer owners, check this out!
It basically is a theme which allows you to make your tablet’s homescreen look like Windows 8 (or Windows Phone 7) with its Metro UI. You will have to flash this one using ClockworkMod Recovery but that shouldn’t scare you off if you are a heavy tweaker/modder. To find out more details, instructions and feedback, follow the source links below according to [...]
A die-hard Android fan and power-user must have probably already tried out by now the ClockworkMod Touch Recovery, given that there are more and more devices supported.
However, the first tablets to get ClockworkMod Touch Recovery are two Asus Tablets, namely the Asus Transformer TF101 and the Asus Transformer Prime TF201. If you really want to try it out — and say goodbye to volume rocker navigation — you need to have a rooted tablet (chances are you already have one if you’re a power user) after which you can either fire up ROM Manager to flash ClockworkMod [...]
Almost a month or so ago, Asus started to roll out the official Ice Cream Sandwich update for the original Transformer, the TF101. Still, there were a couple of bugs on the system after the refresh but there are now reports talking about a recent bugfix update.
Build 126.96.36.199 is what you’ll get after the small refresh but there is no changelog attached. However, according to reports, it should help those who experience short battery life and random reboots while using the tablet. If you already received the update, drop us a comment below. If you did not, you might want to [...]
Just yesterday we reported that users in Taiwan were the first to get the official Ice Cream Sandwich refresh available on their Asus Transformer TF101 tablets. Starting today, users in North America (US and Canada) who own WiFi versions of this tablet will also receive an over-the-air notification, according to reports; in case it hasn’t reached your device yet, make sure to manually check for the update.
Other users (those who own a 3G flavor or international variants) will just need to wait a little bit more. While the loss of root privileges was expected, more recent [...]
Recently we’ve heard about the first custom ROM for the Asus Transformer Prime — now that it has an unlockable bootloader — and now the manufacturer is making an official Ice Cream Sandwich announcement, though for a previous model.
According to the tablet-maker’s Facebook page, the official Ice Cream Sandwich update — that is firmware v.188.8.131.52 — for the TF101 Transformer tablet is rolling out as of now. We’ve heard of February/March plans regarding ICS on the TF101 and we’re glad to see it being rolled-our. First ones to get [...]
Despite promising an official Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Transformer TF101 to land this month, Asus didn’t deliver just yet. Not that we’re already at the end of the month but a recent Facebook post seems to shed some light on the upcoming refresh.
According to Asus Singapore, the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Asus Transformer “will be ready within the Feb/March 2012 period”. Best case scenario: a couple of weeks. Worst case scenario: a tad more than a month. Whenever that happens you will receive an over-the-air update notification [...]
